Borderlands_Legendary_Hunt_5

Use your Action Skills and guns to quickly take it out.

It will spawn an egg when it dies and, from this, both Bobby Crawky and Kira Crawly will emerge. Both of these monsters are Level 9.

Borderlands_Legendary_Hunt_8

You should focus on Bobby Crawly first as he attacks with Shock Damage. This includes creating pools of Shock Damage on the ground.

Borderlands_Legendary_Hunt_4

Shoot him while he's in the air to knock him back down to earth, where you can easily use your Action Skills.

Once these two Varkids are dead, another egg will spawn.

From this final egg, the Level 10 Matty Crawly will appear.

Matty attacks with Incendiary Damage; shooting out three spikes of fire from his belly. Once again, use a combination of your weapons and Action Skill to bring this Legendary Hunt to an end.

Borderlands_Legendary_Hunt_6

Throughout this battle you'll be attacked by the other Varkid in the valley. It's a good idea to kill some of these Varkid before the battle begins, but, if you're level is high enough, you should be able to destroy the Crawly family, while these other monsters attack you.

For murdering the Crawly family, you'll receive a collection of loot from their dead bodies, as well as:

Skrakk is a Level 9 monstrous combination of a Rakk and Skag. We don't want to know how that happened.

Before you even consider attacking Skrakk, you should take out the Level 7 Skag Pups and Level 6 Badass Fire Skag that live in this area. This will allow you to focus on the Skrakk without any distractions or taking any extra damage.

Borderlands_Legendary_Hunt_3
Kill the Badass Fire Skag before focusing on the Skrakk.

The best way to kill the Skrakk is to use a Sniper Rifle when its high in the air. This will allow you to do some good damage and, using the scope, ensure your bullets hit.

Borderlands_Legendary_Hunt_2
Use a Sniper Rifle to easily hit the Skrakk at a distance.

When the Skrakk begins to move closer switch to either an SMG or Assault Rifle to deal some rapid fire damage.

Don't forget to use your Action Skills either when it gets closer.

  • 391 XP
  • $39
  • 15 Eridium

It's on this platform where your battle with the Chupacabratch will take place.

It will attack using by shooting sludge at you and creating pools of this poisonous goo on the floor. Move around the battlefield to avoid these attacks and keep filling the Chupacabratch with bullets.

Borderlands_Legendary_Hunt_9

Elemental weapons are a good choice against the Chupacabratch, especially ones that deal Shock Damage.

Borderlands_Legendary_Hunt_10

Borderlands_Hunt_9
Don't worry - he'll be fine.

The Jabbermogwai will die after being killed twice. This monster, however, isn't too much of a threat, so you should be able to quickly kill it.

  • 4,573 XP

The Legendary Phoenix.

It will attack you by drive bombing, shooting balls of fire at you and with a flamethrower attack.

The Phoenix is immune to the majority of the elemental attacks, especially, unsurprisingly, to Incendiary attacks.

Borderlands_Hunt_18

It also flies quite fast, so the best time to attack it is often when it's attacking you. This makes it a good idea to pick up a strong shield before hunting the Phoenix.

When the Phoenix uses its fire attack on you, it will pause in midair. Use this time to fill it with lead.

Borderlands_Hunt_12
Tinkvark comes after Manvark.

Killing the Tinkvark will create a Level 30 Manvark??, which will become a Level 31 Manvark once its defeated.

When its in one of its Varkid forms, the Manvark will attack you with Varkid based attacks, and, when its in its Tink form, the Manvark will have Tink melee attacks.

The area is also home to Level 32 Varkid Lava, which have the ability to turn into stronger Varkid enemies. You can stop this from happening by destroying the pods they transform into.

Borderlands_Hunt_15
Killing the surrounding Varkid will make this hunt easier.

If your level is high enough, then you can get away with ignoring these Varkid, but it's a good idea to kill some of these Varkid before fighting the Manvark. This way you won't get overwhelmed by enemies.

  • 6,689 XP
  • $671
  • 15 Eridium
